Irregular corneas

A normal cornea has an area nearly spherical. Using a comparison would be like a basketball ball. Now imagine that we can deform the ball and modify its regular shape: any resulting surface, except the ball like a football ball (astigmatism) would be considered an irregular surface.

We face cases that require specific training and sophisticated equipment. Pathologies such as keratoconus or pellucid marginal degeneration and post-traumatic or transplanted corneas, faces us in front of one of the most complex challenges in adapting contact lenses. In these cases the view, even with the best ranking possible in glasses, rarely becomes good because the irregularities of the cornea generate a very high distortion.

Adapting gas permeable lenses (GP or semi-rigid) allows us to obtain an improvement in vision that, in most cases, surpasses any other method of correction. The tear layer that is between the lens and the cornea fills irregularities in the corneal surface generating a new smooth curve that eliminates distortions and distorted images.

Our optometristes select the appropriate lens according to the results of a thorough visual examination and the essential corneal topography. The possibility to perform computer simulations makes such adjustments faster and less expensive than a few years ago because the lenses are manufactured with absolute precision and exclusively for each patient.

Our highest motivation is the satisfaction of our customers when they regain the quality of life lost due to a distorted view of their world.
